Creating Variations in the B Section

What's up Doc?

Ok, so this double stop slide lick is soooo Doc Watson. I think he would dig it, he may have even played it, or something like it for sure. Anyway, keep pressure on the slides so the notes sound out well. When playing the chromatic lick, try not to mute the open B string. Let that note ring as long as possible. The harmonic "rub" of the open B against the 3rd fret note on the G string is what makes this lick extra greasy.
